“Fantastic value for money.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

I stayed for a mid week overnight stay on a business trip and found my room to be spotlessly clean, incredibly comfortable and welcoming. Facilities in my room were excellent and the breakfast was delicious with ample choice. I wouldn't hesitate to return here maybe next time with my family!!

We could not have been made more welcome by the owners, the room was huge(with a huge bed) and spotlessly clean.The added touches of tea (herb tea in my case as I am a pain) and cake when we arrived was such a nice gesture. The breakfast was lovely - mostly locally sourced - very locally from their hens! We would definately recommend this b and b to anyone, and hopefully will stay again.

I stay in hotels and b&b's every week on business and this is the nicest room I have ever stayed in, fantastically clean and modern bathroom and a king size bed that puts premier inn's beds to shame nice touches such as fridge with milk and water and homemade cake, breakfast was excellent with locally sourced sausages and bacon and eggs from the hens in the garden. will definitely be back. thanks Carol see you soon.

Great B&B, and as others have said spotlessly clean, modern and very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent and genuinely does 'feature local produce as far as possible' declaring provenance as well, including eggs from the garden (well the hens in the garden!).
The last minute important thing for us this time was the assistance offered and given during my temporary disability. I'm new to this 'challenged mobility' game and hadn't realised how different requirements are. Carol and Rob were so welcoming and helpful and did everything to make the one night stay in a ground floor room with walk in shower memorable for good reasons!
Thank you so much, and we look forward to seeing you without my crutches!

Very comfortable, modern and clean b&b.
We stayed in january for one night, we were made very welcome by our hosts. Our room on the first floor was a good size, faultlessly clean and lovely breakfast.

Very nice to see a bath at this time of year, only shower gel and body lotion were provided, so bring your own, which isn't an issue for us. We were recommended a nice pub for dinner and awoke with a cooked breakfast of your choosing, with cereals, fruit, pastries and yogurt to help yourself to. Lots of parking too.

Faultless stay!

We stayed at the White House this weekend as we had to be down in Poole to do some work on a family home. They had a deal on, so the stay was very reasonable, breakfast was amazing and all in all a great stay. The room was lovely and spacious with a bath, and the living area was huge. The owners were lovely a friendly and made us feel really welcome - I would definitely stay here again.

Our one night stay on way to France - could not fault this lovely accommodation this was a last minute booking - the owners were more than helpful - even getting up early to cook breakfast which was excellent for our early morning ferry. The bedroom very spacious with coffee/tea facilities plus home make cake. Definitely can recommend and would stay again when next in the area.
